To cap off one of the strangest basketball seasons ever, LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers took home the NBA Championship Sunday night (October 11th). And after watching the final game of the series unfold, a number of musicians took to social media to voice their support for the players and team.
James and company gave the Lakers their first championship since the late Kobe Bryant won his fifth and final title a decade ago. After the game, The King and fellow star Anthony Davis dedicated the trophy to their former teammate, who died in January during a helicopter crash. The milestone achievement by the Lakers is their 17th title, which ties the Boston Celtics franchise for the all-time record.
Lakers fans partied well into the night as fans from the music community and the entertainment world shared their thoughts on this historic season. See some of the reactions below from the likes of Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, RHCP member Flea, and more, with many linking the win to both Kobe and his daughter Gianna.
